Re: no files

Is this with the built in memory or the sd card?? if its built in then you may have a firmware problem or while you were on the puter you got messing around with files and switched around a few?? ok maybe not . I ask cause i've done it myself and scewed my unit up and the only way I was able to fix it was contact the company and they gave me some software to load and it was all better If you can contact the manufacturer of this unit Im sure they would be able to assist you as I cant really say without hooking up the unit and analizing the data I get back from it.. Well good luck to ya.

How do i down load music off my computer

You connect the mp3 player to your computer via USB, it should show up on your computer as a connected device, from there you should be able to drag and drop music files that are on your computer on to the mp3 player.

My Philips Gogear SA 1356 is not playing though the songs are loaded. It shows 'no files'.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
Google search for free mp3 music files and download them to your computer. Then connect the USB cable that came with your player, connect it to your player and then plug it into the USB port on your computer. The computer will see the player as an external storage device, then copy the mp3 music files to your player.
You can convert your CDs for free and copy them to your MP3 player. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a Philips GOgear SA5285 and I can load the audible audiobooks and they go to the audiobook file but when I load my library books from they load as songs and do not have book marks, so...

If you are a newbie, and you primarily want the mp3 player for audiobooks, then go ahead and take this player back to the store - I'll tell you why:
The deal between Audible and Philips fell through before the latest series of GoGear's was released. Therefore, even though the player has an Audible folder, it will not properly play Audible audiobook files. Sad, but true.

Your post reminds me that I need to write a Consumer Watch article on mp3 players that claim to play audiobooks - 90% of them will not easily allow you to play audiobooks - you will have to jump through hoops.

If you still want to try, here is what you want to do:
1. Delete any audiobooks off the GoGear, but make sure that you have a copy of the audibooks on your computer itself.
2. Open Windows Media Player. Find your audiobook files in your library. If they don't show up, then you will have to move your mouse over the Library tab - a small black arrow should appear underneath the word "Library" - click the black arrow and select "Add to Library". Click "Add" and find the folder in which your Audible files are stored. It may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player will add these files to Windows Media Player.
3. Right-click an Audiobook file starting with Chapter 1 of whatever book, and select "Advanced Tag Editor". One-by-one, manually assign an a track number to each audiobook chapter - Track 1 for Chapter 1, Track 2 for Chpater 2, etc.
4. Now, re-add the audiobook files to your GoGear.
5. You might additionally have to go into the Settings menu of your GoGear, and turn Shuffle mode off - your user's manual can show you how to do this.

Sound like a lot of work? You betcherbottom dollar it's a lot of work. This particular mp3 player is not the best for audiobooks.

Cant load songs

the best way for that is to read your manual.

Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
CD-ROM drive
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.

To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.

Sansa m250 2GB file adding problems

Can't create directories directly on the m250. I've got about 1000 songs loaded (already broken into subdirectories) that take up 800 MB and the device claims that it's full. (Firmware is also updated to 4.1.08A)

Weird files showing up in the music folder / music not uploading

I am having the same problem. I have tried everything short of a BIG HAMMER. It seems like there should be a way to reformat the thing back to the original out of the box state. I've removed the battery, tried locked file delete utilities, dos commands, you name it, and no change. Next step will be to call Sandisk I guess. What a pain in the keister! Any help appreciated here too!
